    What it says on the tin.

    I see places like Arnie's that are still up and seem fairly active. Are there any other airsoft forums that still exist?

    Airsoft Forum is...but not enough people online to support two.

    The local MAA forum is still up..but mainly used for BST.

    A lot of people that were on this forum 10 years ago or so outgrew airsoft and I think that new people aren't bothered enough to create log-ins for additional websites/forums. I'm glad this forum is still up, but I don't have time to get on anymore since I haven't played airsoft in years and/or any info I have that may be worth posting is likely super out-of-date.

    Outside of youtube comments or reddit, I haven't seen any other new airsoft forums crop up. If anything, there may be more people that get involved in a local forum, perhaps belonging to a specific field or area.

    I think I know what you mean. Tried playing multiple times, years ago. Just couldn't do it, wasn't having much fun. I like the guns and militaria that I collect though.

    Yeah, I still have one of my AK replicas and I think my old JPC, but ended up selling most everything else. I loved playing at one of the larger fields here in DFW, but once friends started started to quit playing and things got busy, it got pushed to the back burner. The last time I went (thinking it was 2018 or so), it was just not worth the effort, time, or money to get everything ready and spend an entire Saturday doing it. Maybe I'll try again at some point, but I have no idea when that would be

    I have a feeling this forum will out live airsoftforum. But after that if this forum one day shuts down I'm sure someone will start a new one.

    But the real challenge is keeping with it year after year, even when personal interests change or if something horrible happens like file corruption.

    This! The way real life is for me nowadays I'm lucky to check in a couple times a week, and that's mostly only long enough to make sure you idiots haven't burnt the place down. :D
